I still have Falcon 4.0 somewhere. Any idea if this works fine in Win7 x64?
Ah, the Commodore Amiga and F18 Interceptor. That's a blast from the past.
Read about Storm of War Battle of Britain in 2006 said it was going to be released at the end of 2006, been waiting for 3 years now and still there is little to no new info about the game don't think another 6 months will do it.
...equally, what happened to space-sims?
I want to fly my Sopwith Camel again.
As fun as X3 can get at times, it's not a patch on Freespace 2 for combat.
This might be of interest to you all! Thanks to Joe for letting me know this morning!
*does happy dance*
After it was reported that some of the 9/11 people repeatedly practiced flying into the twin towers and other targets on PC flight simulators, I guess the desire to make what would be higher and higher detailed more realistic versions sort of dried up.
Though now with things like ATi's eyefinity wrap- around and DX11 graphics, no doubt a very realistic home flight sim could be created, probably comparable to the real training simulators.
I repeatedly practice taking over the world, that doesn't mean C&C gets closed down
I also liked starlancer and freelancer, but hey..nothing much happening is there? (or was the "this" by Paradigm Shifter supposed to be a link?
There is one in development...
now when I get home I gonna start playing F16 Multirole Fighter again... thnx bit-tech
I also remember myself playing the really old F15 Strike Eagle in my father`s 486 pc
Freespace 1/2, Descent 1/2/3 were incredible space/flight sims, even if they weren't realistic at all.
Fighter Bomber on the Amiga and ST.
Took aaaaaaaaaaages to turn the plane. lol
Why do you need a sim when you can do it for real
Although real is about $140/hr more expensive
You get to shoot people from the air for 140$/hr? I'm coming!

I still play FSX and the Acceleration expansion pack regularly. It's awesome, especially now it can be run at or close to maximum detail.
+1 Just give me a Cesna, some pipe bombs and some duct tape.
Modern flight sims aren't that fun with their missiles and green HUDs. What's with all the chaff farting anyway?
A real man takes his opponent with MG fire.
Or lasers. Gotta love Tie Fighter!
